Season 3, Episode 37 – This week, we’re heading up to the California Craft Beer Summit and making a few stops along the way.
The 2016 California Craft Beer Summit is upon us! But, before get into the nitty gritty of the event, we’re driving up to Sacramento and making some stops along the way to pick up some beers from California breweries that we normally wouldn’t have access to. Erin Peters from The Beer Goddess also joins us in our makeshift hotel room studio in beautiful downtown Sacramento, California.
California is the largest state in the United States of America, and is home to approximately 600 breweries. According to the Brewers Association, approximately 95% of beer brewed in California in 2015 was sold in California. That’s a lot of beer, and the Brewers Association says there’s still room for more breweries. That’s pretty exciting.
The beers on the show this week cover a pretty large swath of California. We made stops in Bakersfield at Lengthwise Brewing Company, Fresno at Tioga-Sequoia Craft Brewery, and Turlock at Dust Bowl Brewery. While these breweries are all geographically in California, the beers they brew are unique to their respective markets, making for a deliciously diverse group of beers for this week’s show.
It should be noted that we kicked off the show this week with Union Craft Brewing’s Old Pro gose, which was sent to us by Four Brewers listener Jason Evans. We meant to include it on our gose show, but it got lost in the mix. Sorry about that, Jason! The beer was great!
